See WA Police officers embody the spirit of reconciliation, as they do their job! Throughout NAIDOC Week and for months to come, all Western Australians can see 2100 WA Police officers wearing special police uniform shirts featuring one of seven different art images, by WA Aboriginal artists. Each image represents a WA region. Those same great images have been emblazoned on seven operational police vehicles - 6 for WA's regional districts and one for the metropolitan area of Perth. Check out WA Police's Facebook page for great videos of their recent trips to those districts. Ask

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Federal Referendum that was considered by many to be a critical turning point for political change within Indigenous affairs. This Federal Referendum recommended the removal of two clauses within the Australian Constitution that were discriminatory towards Indigenous Australians and, as a result of the political climate of the time, saw the highest YES vote ever recorded, with 90.77 per cent voting for change.

This exhibition will present the perspectives of a number of diverse Indigenous artistic communities from across Western Australia
